Making the Bed of a Potty-Trainer

When your child is in the midst of potty training and has an accident in the middle of the night, you are so very tired that the last thing you want to do is remake the bed - right?

So don't. :)

Make the bed up to start with like this:
1st layer: waterproof pad/cover
2nd layer: fitted sheet
3rd layer: another waterproof pad/cover
4th layer: fitted sheet
(then proceed as usual)

When your potty trainer has an accident in the middle of the night, all you have to do is pull off a couple of layers and "TA-DA!" the bed is ready for sleeping again in no time flat.

Sweet dreams!

  3. This is a great idea!! I was fortunate to be given several washable pads that they use on beds at the hospital by an aunt that works in the laundry - they throw away anything that has even a slight stain on it - so, I lay those on my daughter's bed and don't have to change a whole bed!
